Description

NGC 2671, Not a very bright open cluster in the constellation of Vela, magnitude 11.6, complicated image for many problems during acquisition, but is a nice field full of colourful dust. The other thing I found interesting is that is a kind of "frustrated" globular cluster (It is just an appreciation, no science behind my words) it has a rather nice central grouping of stars.

Other objects are there such as Gum 17, Gum 15 and Cr 197 as well as the SL2 (The dark nebula Sandqvist 2),
